Make sure there isn't a limit on the memory size for the camera, some models have a limit.
also make sure the lock switch on the memory card isn't in the locked position: http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1102

Camera keeps saying memory full but have inserted new sdhc card


The S1030 works with SD cards, not with SDHC cards. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

My Kodak EasyShare V530, won't accept a memory card, you insert a memory card, and it doesn't even acknowledge that there is a memory card inserted.


I bet the memory card that you're inserting is a brand new 4GB SDHC card (your camera can only use 2GB or less standard SD cards). There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". The most common is trying to use a 4GB or higher SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Other causes include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.

Can I use a 4GB SDHC memory card in my samsung sl310w camera?


Hi,

Here is what the Samsung websites says:

MMCplus(up to 2GB guaranteed 4bit 20MHz);
SD (up to 4GB guaranteed);
SDHC (up to 8GB guaranteed);

So it is OK to use a 4GB SDHC memory card in your samsung sl310w.

Hope this helps.

When i insert 4gb memory card into canon power shot s21s, camera is disabled. cannot take pictures


Your new 4GB memory card is the problem. The card would likely be an SDHC card (look on its front cover). Your A540 camera was designed well before the SDHC format came out, and your camera will not recognize it. Your camera can only use standard SD cards (2GB or less). Here's some from Amazon.

Loaded new memory card, and screen reads memory card error-memory card locked. Removed new card from camera, nnlocked card, inserted card again, but received same message. Please advise.


I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. If your camera is more than a few couple years old, it's likely it was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with older cameras.
For older cameras, you'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

Memory card


What type of camera are you using? Also, are we talking SD style cards?

Basically if you are using SD cards you need to make sure your camera is compatible with SDHC cards if you want to use anything above 2GB. Once you go from 2GB to 4GB it is no longer an SD; it becomes an SDHC card and not all cameras are compatible with them yet.

SD cards


Do the 4GB Cards say SDHC on them? They should. SDHC is simply "Secure Digital High Capacity". They're high capacity SD cards that hold more than regular cards. In this case, 4GB. The problem with these is that they need to be supported by the device. I've never put an SDHC card into a device that doesn't support them, but it looks like that's what your situation is. The highest memory capacity a non-SDHC compliant device is capable of 2GB. I recommend that you return the 4GB cards and buy 2GB cards instead.
